Propel Your team to a Podium Performance
Do you want to boost your peoples' sense of purpose? Do you want to show them how to take on their greatest challenges with courage and conviction?
A most improbable Olympian, Jeremiah has learned what it takes to reach the podium – in sport, in business, and in life.
With lessons from high-pressure Olympic performance environments, Jeremiah shares battle-tested insights on transformation, resilience, teamwork, and leadership in the pursuit of big goals.
"When you're considering all possibilities, you're considering nothing. You have to make a choice. Life demands that you choose.
The reason I have a story to share with you is less of what I had to do and more the choices of what environment I put myself in."
- Jeremiah Brown

Go with real-world experience for deep impact and inspiration
Credibility counts. In a crisis, people rely on responders to share the information they need to protect themselves and their communities. A speaker's content will be judged based on whether it is trustworthy. Just as people are more likely to follow the public health advice of trusted sources, they will only allow themselves to be truly impacted by a speaker's message when that speaker has walked the talk.

When you need to inspire commitment and motivate action
Jeremiah takes audiences on an incredible one-of-a-kind journey of personal transformation and team unity. He challenges common notions of what it means to lead and to be led in the pursuit of excellence. He shows how to adapt to forces outside of one’s control and stay the course when the pressure is on, all while encouraging a healthy dose of self-compassion and humility.
Using vivid real-life Olympic setbacks, failures, and ultimate success, Jeremiah illuminates the true markers for success in any competitive setting.
When you need courageous leadership through adversity
When Jeremiah traveled across the country to learn how to row and take his moonshot at Olympic glory, the Canadians were the defending Olympic rowing champions. By the time he earned an opportunity to compete, the team had fallen to ranking seventh in the world.
What do Olympic coaches do differently? And how can we apply these lessons to the workplace? With the unique perspective of an outsider who joined the team at its lowest point in decades, Jeremiah takes audiences through the dramatic turnaround that saw the team climb back onto the podium.
When helping them adapt to disruption and change
We are all tasked with embracing change, or risk being left behind by disruption and market forces outside of our control. Constant learning and reinvention are the new normal.
From the Olympic laboratory to the workplace, Jeremiah uses masterful storytelling to carefully deconstruct how to perform and execute in the face of overwhelming challenges.
